More than 330 blankets were donated to a blanket drive hosted by the Cuero Regional Hospital and Cuero Home Health.

The drive started in late October with a goal of collecting 100 blankets, and ended with three times that when the drive closed Nov. 29, according to a news release from the hospital.

The hospital and Cuero Home Health organized the drive to support seniors during the winter months, many of whom have a hard time keeping warm, and controlling utility costs, on a fixed income.

The drive received particularly large blanket donations from the Cuero Medical Clinic, more than 50 blankets; City of Cuero, 32 blankets; TrustTexas Bank, 20 blankets; the Victoria College nursing students, 20 blankets; Faye Sheppard, 24 blankets; St. Paul Lutheran Church in Yorktown, 22 blankets; and two donors who requested to remain anonymous, 14 blankets each.
